BABY MODELS NEEDED FOR CLINICAL TONGUE TIE CLASS IN PORTLAND, OR-OCTOBER 10-11.
Free oral assessment for babies! Luna Lactation is hosting a workshop for clinicians interested in learning more about oral restrictions such as tongue and lip tie and neonatal oral motor issues.
One objective of the workshop is for participants to hone their assessment skills. For this task, working with real parents and babies is an extremely useful learning strategy. If your infant is dealing with feeding concerns, particularly oral issues or suspected restrictions of the lip or tongue, we would love to hear from you! We also need babies that have recently had a frenotomy for post-frenotomy care ‘models’.
The assessment is FREE for families, and invaluable for attendees! We are hoping to have models on Thursday and Friday, October 10 and 11, between the hours of 2:00pm and 4:30pm. We would most likely need 30 minutes of your time on either of these days (assessment on Thursday, post frenotomy babies on Friday ideally). Please contact us if you are able to bring in your infant (ideally age 0-6 mos) for assessment. Please share this post with others! All assessments will be supervised by Melissa Cole, MS, IBCLC.
